    I am honored to have been a part of ENCORE for three years. Working with these people has been the greatest part of my high school experience. We are truly a family here. Everyone is encouraged to be themselves and to enjoy the club as a creative outlet. Although it pains me that I am now a senior and will be leaving this group, I intend to carry with me all of the memories I've made.
